I grew up in Tassie - the historic northern town of Westbury to be exact. Grab a car and just drive. It is all charming. Cradle Mountain is a bit overpriced but the bushwalking is magic. Driving North from Launceston (along the Tamar river to Georgetown) is spectacular - stop at the wineries and fruit farms :-) Between Devonport and Launceston is a place called the 'Christmas hills raspberry farm' highly recommended. Travelling south, Richmond, Ross and Campbelltown on the main highway are all historic. Port Arthur is a must see and Hobart has Salamanca, the waterfront and Mount Wellington. If you have more time, the east coast (Bay of Fires) has some of the best nature/scenery in Tas - head for Wineglass Bay. Tassie also has some of the best food in the country so live it up and enjoy! over 7 years ago
Is it easy to find a Job in canada with out using one of those recruitment agencies? West coast, am arriving a month before summer starts.
I wish you the best of luck. We went during the recession (December 2008) and couldn't find work for 2 months (and then it was only part time in a coffee shop).... My husband is an engineer and I am a marketer by trade - there was no hope of working in our skilled professions. But that said, my friend is there now (albeit Toronto) and scored some customer service jobs pretty easily by just asking at the shopping centres. If you use CraigsList be very careful - there area lot of scams and crap on there. over 7 years ago
Cannes is ok - very expensive and a bit 'fake' though. We liked Nice much better - beautiful waterfront. You can hire bikes and ride along the promenade, and the old city centre is beautiful to explore. over 6 years ago
